The fourth and final installment of the Murderbot diaries, Exit Strategy, is a wonderful conclusion to this delightful series. Martha Wells, the author of this series, keeps the readers attention from the first sentence of the first paragraph till the final word of the last sentence.
The description of the story from the book cover is as follows:
“Murderbot wasn’t programmed to care. So its decision to help the only human who ever showed it respect must be a system glitch, right?
Having traveled the width of the galaxy to unearth details of its own murderous transgressions, as well as those of the GrayCris Corporation, Murdbot is heading home to help Dr. Mensah – its former owner (protector? friend?) – submit evidence that could prevent GrayCris from destroying more colonists in its never-ending quest for profit.
But who’s going to believe a SecUnit gone rogue?
And what will become of it when it’s caught?” – Bookcover of Exit Strategy
Favorite characters from the first book, All Systems Red, return in book four. A majority of the action takes place on the space station that is home to the corporate headquarters for the GrayCris Corporation. Unfortunately to say anything about the story of this book would give away valuable information necessary to the story. I just hope that you will take the time to read it for yourself.
Described by science fiction writer Annalee Newitz as “One of the most humane portraits of a nonhuman I’ve ever read.” This book is a fantastic ending to the series. I cannot recommend this book or the entire series enough.
